KINGSTON — The four remaining athletes who had their cases heard by the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) disciplinary panel on Friday will know on Monday, whether or not they will join their teammates in Berlin.
"We’ve finished the matter, we’ve heard the deliberations and we now need to make a decision," chairman of the three man disciplinary panel, Kent Gammon, explains afterwards.
"We’re in the process now of reviewing our notes and the panel will have a decision within with the next 72 hours," he added.
The athletes who had their cases heard on Friday were identified as sprinters Yohan Blake and Marvin Anderson, as well as 400 metres runners Allodin Fothergill and Lansford Spence.
Meanwhile, following Monday’s premature ending to the first hearing, sprinter Sheri Ann Brooks was on Wednesday cleared by the panel, but learned afterwards that the decision was put back on the burner after JADCO decided to make an appeal.
Despite being severely criticized, Gammon backs the board’s decision to appeal against the verdict.
